What are your interests?



The Social person's interests focus on interacting with the people in their environment. In all cases, the Social person enjoys the personal contact with other people in preference to the impersonal dealings with things, data and ideas found in other groups.

Many will seek out positions where there is direct contact with the public in some advisory role, whether a receptionist or a counsellor. Social people are motivated by an interest in different types of people and like diversity in their work environments. Many are drawn towards careers in the caring professions and social welfare area, whilst others prefer teaching and other 'informing' roles.

Coveted NUI Galway Degree places secured by Monaghan Institute students

Posted on September 5, 2019

Three students have secured places on highly sought after courses in NUIG, after graduating from Monaghan Institute with a QQI Business Level 5 award. 

Dawid Jarosinski and Samanta Dzanuska have been offered the only two places available for QQI applicants on the B Commerce (Global Experience) degree. This course requires 509 CAO points, however these students obtained their place by achieving Distinction grades in all their modules on the QQI Business Level 5 Award. 

Nicolae Boboc has also secured his first choice place on the Bachelor of Law and Business which was 436 CAO points. All three students are past pupils of Beech Hill College, Monaghan and have commended the education and support they received in both Beech Hill College and Monaghan Institute in helping them secure their first choice preference courses. 

This is just an example of the many Monaghan Institute students progressing to Third Level Institutes this September.  The Higher Education Links Scheme provides progression opportunities for learners who are studying courses in Monaghan Institute and are interested in applying for Degree Programme’s through the CAO. Learners can secure a Level 5 or a Level 6 QQI major award by doing a PLC course and then use this qualification to apply to their Degree Programme of choice. Third Level Colleges reserve a number of places each year for students applying via the PLC/QQI route. 

Any student who has not secured their CAO preference course should consider a one year link PLC course in Monaghan Institute.
